Td post up the info in another thread on meeting places etc. It should probably be at a gas station or Starbucks or something that everyone can find on GPS so an address would be good.
Matt, It's in Colo Springs on the west side near the Broadmoor. There are both upper and lower gold camp rds lower is essencially a dirt road that over looks the city, but a honda could do it. I haven't been on upper in a long time but it apparently goes through to Cripple creek. I would probably rate the trail at maybe a 2-3 at best. Like I said though, I haven't been in a long time!
I don't care who comes and I'm sure most of the guys here don't give a crap either. Bring what ever vehicle you want. My brother comes on almost every trip I do in his Toyota truck. The last trips out saw Toyotas, Jeeps etc. We even had a stock Cherokee do China wall with only minor body damage. Pity parties will not be accepted nor will discrimination. We are here to have a good time and if there is any discrimination, dislike, or anything else that can get in the way of having a good time, LEAVE IT AT HOME! As well, most of our trips are based around families. Therefore please keep the language to a minimum on the trail. Be respectful as we have both women and children along. Drinking on the trail will absolutely not be tolerated!
Now have fun!
Also: Check out the difficulty of the trails for yourself before you come out. http://www.Traildamage.com
has most of the trails listed. Know your limits and your vehicle limits. If you decide to come on a run the rest of the group will do their best to keep you from getting damage and assist in spotting. Please be respectful and remember that it is no one else's fault if you damage your vehicle. Do your own research prior to committing to a trail.
I know where you are headed with this overall Chris. But you should know that I have brought beer in the past, and if the destination has a nice lunch place, I might even bring some wine for the lunch. Now I'm not sure you are considering this "drinking on the trail", but I thought it worth mentioning. I do NOT think people should be downing beers or worse liquor in excess (getting out of hand), and certainly not while driving on the trail or in front of kids. I also don't like a bunch of foul language, and getting out of hand. So just wondering before we next ride a trail again.
To add to this though, I'd prefer folks that choose to pack guns keep them in their rig and NOT be showing them around. I have no problem with people packing, just keep it in your rig in a safe place unless there is some emergency.
I do like your ending disclaimer.....review trail before signing up, bring appropriate parts, recovery, etc. to do your part in making it through, know your limits, help and be helped.
Edit: oh, I also like a variety of vehicles. Always fun to see strengths and weaknesses. Have always wheeled in an open environment, never just bronco only. And really, I owned a YJ for 7 yrs, and an XJ before that.
